Buried Lead

There simply isn’t anything to say.
This news provides its own analysis
beyond all vitriol and overplay.
It settles down to cold catalysis
when numbers from the autopsy come in.
Blood/alcohol at 0.19-plus.
No mention of the crucial firing pin
that proves she could be anyone of us.
And if the New York Post and Daily News
both ask, “How Could She?” in a front page head,
coincidentally ignoring clues
that flash like gasoline about the dead
young mother and her dying child and nieces,
they’ll miss the point of picking through the pieces.
